Now that I’ve hit 50, I’ve decided to get serious about the pigmentation and age spots on my face. Fine lines and wrinkles are also so ageing, and I was hoping to find a product that could help with the multiple skin concerns I had. With so many products on the market, I was looking for something efficacious, that didn’t irritate my skin and leave me with redness.
The Mayerling Forte Day & Night Cream are a powerful duo, that are aimed at more mature skin, to help with ageing concerns, including pigmentation, fine lines, and skin firmness. The Forte Day Cream contains Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid giving it a two-phase exfoliation resurfacing action, while the addition of Vitamin A helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production (with Vitamin A, remember to wear sunscreen whilst using this product and for a week afterwards). The added Vitamin B3, Vitamin C and Vitamin E in the formulation provide substantial anti-oxidant and UV protection and help to prevent loss of moisture whilst the Bearberry Extract helps to retard melanin production and reduces pigmentation. The Forte Night Cream contains a potent combination of Bearberry Extract, Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C) and Glycolic Acid, which work synergistically to help reduce pigmentation and wrinkles, minimising pore size and assisting in firming and tightening your skin. The duo is likely the closest you’ll ever get to skin resurfacing in a bottle. I used these 2 beauties in conjunction with the Vitamin C 15% Dermal Transfer System, to give an extra boost to helping to fade my pigmentation and discolouration, and improve skin elasticity. The stable formula did tingle the first few times I used it, as it’s so powerful, but it was nothing unpleasant, and did settle down after a few days. Mayerling Forte Day & Night Cream 50g each RRP $198.00 for the set (and at the moment with the purchase of the set you receive a complimentary Foaming Facial Cleanser 120ml valued at $45, and 2 x 4ml testers of the Dermal Transfer Serum Vitamin C 15%, valued at $37 – great value). Mayerling Vitamin C 15% Dermal Transfer System 30ml RRP $140.00. All 3 are Made in Australia.
Now to the serious part – how did this work for me? I’m pleased to report that I can see a significant improvement in my pigmentation and skin discolouration after only 6 weeks, and I’m going to keep using for another 6 weeks, and see what a full 12 weeks brings. My skin looks firmer and plumper, and it feels so much more elastic, bouncing back into place when touched. There is still no miracle cure for ageing, but these might just be the next best things. For mature skin, I’m really happy with this trio.
